In the past, you might have known Loyal Books as Books Should Be Free (amen to that). The site offers free audiobooks from a multitude of genres, from adventure and romance to science fiction and historical fiction. Users can download titles from Loyal Books to be listened to via an MP3 file or through the Apple Podcasts app, or to stream on an RSS feed. The site offers content in 28 languages, from Ancient Greek to Urdu, not including multilingual titles. Volunteers from the site itself, or from Project Gutenberg and Librivox, which are listed below, digitize public domain books to make them accessible in the Loyal Books library.
Open Culture wants us to learn today. The site does more than provide a wide array of audiobooks: It offers free cultural and educational media to whomever wants it. You can find online educational courses on everything from economics to philosophy and even demography to guided meditations, textbooks, and movies. Selections can be listened to via free mp3 downloads, streams, or iTunes downloads. Open Culture runs on donations.
Of course LibriVox grants its users with free audiobooks, but it also takes the process one step further: Because the site's free audiobooks are made possible by volunteer readers, you can volunteer your voice(Opens in a new tab) -- and dramatic reading skills -- to help LibriVox expand its library. In particular, LibriVox needs your help to record books in the public domain, or those that were published before 1923 (no audition or prior recording experience is necessary). Turn your love of audiobooks into a way to give back to the public domain, of which your recorded voice will become a part! LibriVox's audiobook catalog can be enjoyed by downloading audiobook files onto a computer, smartphone, or CD-ROM.
As the oldest digital library online, Project Gutenberg has been working to archive as many books as possible since its founding in 1971. The site's catalog now consists of over 60,000 free ebooks downloadable as mp3 files. That number was made possible by the site's practice of approving 99% of the requests it receives to turn books into audiobooks or ebooks(Opens in a new tab). Similar to LibriVox, Project Gutenberg asks readers to donate their voices if they're willing and able. Volunteer voices contribute to their human-read audiobook collection(Opens in a new tab), and the site also houses a computer-read audiobook collection(Opens in a new tab). If you've got a book you'd like digitized that Project Gutenberg doesn't already have in their catalog, send them an email.(Opens in a new tab) Otherwise, the organization is powered by donations.
Thought Audio prides itself on providing the gift of knowledge(Opens in a new tab) through free audiobook versions of classic titles, philosophic works, biblical excerpts, and prayers. The site's catalog consists of ancient wisdom from multiple faiths, so tune in to discover new truths and find your center. Thought Audio is powered by donations, and audiobooks are read by volunteers. The site's material can be streamed directly from its website or downloaded onto computers.
Who knew everyone's favorite streaming service housed an audiobooks playlist Although it's not as exhaustive as other collections listed above, if you've already downloaded the app, audiobooks are at your fingertips. The playlist is entitled \"Audiobooks\" and each of its 122 \"songs\" is actually a book (or part of one, depending on length). Like the free music on Spotify, the audiobooks playlist doesn't cost a thing, as long as you don't mind sitting through the occasional ad. However, audiobooks can't be listened to in any selected order without Spotify Premium.

Sorry to hear about your audiobook. Often, audiobooks download in sections due to the size of the book. So it may be that the file starting with chapter 16 is the smallest file and hence downloaded the first. Please try downloading the book again and wait for 15-20 minutes for all the sections to download.

Awesome!I didn't narrate my last one because it is definitely a lot of work, and because my friend had become a narrator - the time savings and getting to support a friend (who is also better at narrating than I am) just felt worth the money at the time. As for whether it's worth it - not in any monetary sense (I sold quite a few more books by having audio available, but averaging that out over the hours it took to narrate and produce didn't work out to any sort of reasonable hourly wage). But yeah, I'd say the satisfaction and getting my work in front of a different audience felt worth it, at least for me.

When Audible downloads audiobooks into iTunes, it uses a helper creatively called ADHELPER.EXE that grabs a specific extension registered to it and without prompting, downloads the file into the Temporary Internet Files then moves that file over to your iTunes Library and adds it. It's usually a VERY simple one-click process. Except today, using Filemon from Sysinternals I noticed that IE7 and ADHELPER are fighting over the downloaded file and a Sharing Violation is happening.
